time for what i need to know. tracy. >> a study showed that we spent $54 million to pay for first class tickets for u.n. employees. what? i don't fly first class. i don't. shut the u.n. down, stop funding it. we need more aptds in manhattan. >> we spend a lot of the u.n. budget from the u.s. taxpayer. wayne, what's your one more thing? >> well, i like aon. a long time holding, very good in a recovering economy, look at that. >> what do they do? >> they make air conditioning equipment and that's why -- and in a modular way so it can be expanded when you're in a commercial air conditioning you can add units to it along the way.
2:01 pm
>> what about ann? >> it's not one i'm looking at now. in fact, i'm looking at these banks and there is talk of them collapsing in cyprus. many are doing well like in japan. japan's banks collapsed but it was 20 years ago. nom nomoro is strong. this is one that i own and i think it should be in your portfolio. >> what about u.s. banks? do we kind of made them very whole over the last couple years. >> and they are strong, bank of america not too far off from its high. financials here or abroad, maybe cyprus but not here at home. >> we'll leave it there. and here is a story you need to know. a girl scout troop getting pranked, someone ordering 6,000 boxes of the cookies totaling 24 grand. it was a scam and the girls were left with unsold cookies. americans are coming to the rescue buying around 4,000 boxes
2:02 pm
last saturday and you can help them get the last laugh today so if you are in the portland area buy some cookies. the address on the screen. otherwise check out the website girl scoutsosw. that's it for us. we'll see you next week. >> bob: hello, i'm bob beckel with andrea tantaros, eric bolling, dana perino, greg gutfeld. it's 5:00 in new york city. this is "the five." ♪ ♪ >> bob: i told you i wasn't going to let up on cb s. it meant it. today, "the five" reached out again to ceo les munoz and producer brukehiimer and again they refused to apologize. they wouldn't even comment on the disgrace i'm calling for
2:03 pm
them to apologize for sending reality show contestant to wreckage of b-52 bomber shot down in hanoi. greg told us about the story wednesday. >> teams must make their way to the b-52 memorial. site of wreckage of a b-52 bomber and where they find there. >> this is a double u-turn. >> bob: "the amazing race" episode, broadcast communist propaganda. i spoke today with senator john mccain. it was 40 years ago last week he returned to vietnam after being p.o.w. for five years. he says regardless of how this happens, cbs owes veterans an apology. eric, assume you agree with senator mccain. >> eric: on this i do agree with senator mccain. can i give this back to you? you have been on this.
2:04 pm
greg brought the story. this is resonating. on twitter, my twitter feet lit up after the show. i never got more tweets. more response to how proud they were of you. >> bob: dana taught me how to do a hashtag last night and it blew up after that. >> dana: glad we can share that moment. >> bob: in the -- freddie in the past, hashtag meant something else to you. >> bob: it did. why? why do they not say i'm sorry? >> dana: it's partly because of the fox news syndrome that greg talked about. if fox news brinks it up, it's crazy black helicopter conspiracy. they don't realize, somebody should have been helping them get out of their way. greg didn't come up with the story op its own. there was a vietnam vet e-mailed him -- what, sunday night? >> greg: he e-mailed me and he was polite.
2:05 pm
he said i'm watching this. this is kind of weird. >> bob: this is how you found out about it? >> dana: from a viewer. >> greg: i took the e-mail and forwarded it to the producer. this is crazy. he made a point. are there going to be three legged races in gettysburg? he had good humor but it bothered him. >> bob: for sure. what do you think? do you agree because it's fox? how can you be that stupid and insensitive? >> andrea: that this has grown bigger than fox news. this is a lot of viewers that are upset with this. i don't know if they are tone deaf and think it will blow over and ride it out? the first rule when you step in you-know-what, fix it. clarify, apologize and move on. this is getting bigger.
2:06 pm
they haven't stopped the bleeding. i don't think this is going away. this is getting bigger. freddie i think this is about age. they think the average age of the vietnam vet is over the mid-60s at this point. generally the shows now are run by emasculated metrosexuals chasing mentality of a 16-year-old girl. they don't care about anything over 55. they don't. >> bob: i spoke also today to the commander of the american legion. who sent a letter to cbs demanding an apology. they have 2.5 million vets they represent. he wants to tell cbs none of them will be watching that show again and wanted to thank by the way, "the five" for bringing this forward. this is a poignant discussion. it opposed vietnam. he said i followed your career and i know you did but you've done the right thing here. i got emotional in the end of
2:07 pm
our conversation. this guy was a vietnam vetera veteran. he felt this against the core of his being. >> eric: i hate boycotts. the better thing is man up and apologize. if you -- i have been there first hand doing this. i misspoke. they should apologize. they can run something at the end of one of the shows. hey, sorry for the insensitivity to the vietnam vet or all americans for that matter. karl rove had something to say. he has a message that will appear later on greta. this is a message. >> god bless bob beckel for standing up on this issue. this was tone death, insensitive, callus and stupid for cbs to do this. they allow themselves to insult every vietnam era and the family and those who
2:08 pm
cherish the memory of someone lost in the conflict by doing this. i cannot imagine what idiot producer cbs did this. bob was right to stand up and do this. >> eric: can't two times i agree with mccain and karl rove in the one show. >> dana: my worlds are colliding. >> andrea: all of us agree with bob. >> dana: the guy says it's a double u-turn. it's a double mistake. having contestant goes there in the first place. is ignorant or willful. now you add a triple mistake, because instead of saying we meant no offense, and we will be more sensitive in the future. we would never talk about it again. now prime time shows are covering it. i manual iraqi and war vets who will stand with the vietnam veterans saying we'll
2:09 pm
stand with them. this could happen to us in the future. we want people to know the sacrifice was and fought for freedoms and what the country asked them to do. >> greg: the producers think ho chi minh is sushi and p.o.w. is a new song by one direction. we have a location that americans died. the first to recognize and refuse participation punches the producer in the face. >> dana: wouldn't it be great if one of the contestants came forward and said you know what? i didn't know, or i'm ashamed or i apologize. >> andrea: the producers, at first we talk this up to -- chalk this up to a producer who doesn't know better and executive who does know bette better. but this does appear that they know better. that is upsetting. people aren't taught the le sop of history.
2:10 pm
that is why it is about fox. this is not about fox news or the viewers. this is about the veterans who made the sacrifices and the atrocities and the evil. you know what? i'm not sure a lot of people understand it. now they do. they have no excuse. executives can't say we didn't know. we weren't sure. they know they choose to not say anything. that's upsetting. >> eric: i don't think it's about fox. brukeheimer has been around and he knows what is going on. i don't think he is partisan. he is a guy who blew it. this is more about character. character meaning brukeheemer or munoz, one of you should stand up and say we blew it. we're sorry. but do they have the character to do it? >> bob: i got thousands of tweets. dana got me turned on this. 99% of them is favorable which
2:11 pm
is opposite of what it normally is. >> greg: don't get used to it. >> bob: you made a good point, you think it is possible they made a decision their audience is younger. not vietnam connected. this was fine to go ahead with it? >> greg: if anyone noticed it, the assumption is the audience is too passive. distracted. this operates under this is the big deal. this is how they look at it. there is no many outlets of the opinion. they're antimilitary and anti-americanism. we have come to accept. they could have gone to vietnam. they could have scripted the show differently. they could have said we know
2:12 pm
what happened here. we are not for this. we are for freedom. you know, they could have made it -- please forgive me, it's a banned phrase, teachable moment. >> greg: is it a banned phrase. >> bob: sorry. >> andrea: don't you think that old -- even if older veterans or older viewers are hearing about this story, they are talking about it to with the younger generation. it's permeating and getting larger and i hope they ride it out over the weekend and it will go away. >> dana: we could find up vets to go up against the contestant of "the amazing race" to see who would win. >> bob: i am so absorbed in this. i get madder believe it or not, every minute. if i said this before, excuse me. but vietnam defineed by generation. it was the defining moment. not just the 150,000 vietnam veterans but the generation of the baby movers. painful experience for everybody.
2:13 pm
you could have said vietnam almost ripped america apart. maybe this is not the place to go a bring memories of that back up. so, i'm sorry. go ahead. >> greg: i haven't heard a single person, not even cbs on twit they're says, it's not that big of a deal. this is weird. nobody is defending it. >> andrea: silence has never been louder, i think. by not saying anything. they are screaming they endorse this, or they know they screw up. which is it? >> bob: how did they get away with it? >> eric: did they? we contacted them three times. up with time they said no comment. is that not a comment in and of itself. >> bob: yeah. isn't no comment indietable statement? >> dana: yeah. it's showing the hand. if it's national security related. you can say no comment. we'll get back to you later. but this is basically shut up,
2:14 pm
bob. >> bob: i have heard that before. we'd like to know your thoughts on the issue with cbs. should cbs apologize to vietnam vets? go to and vote in our poll. we'll let you have a chance to send it to cbs a message what about you think. so far, 3,000 of you have taken the poll. overwhelmingly something like 3,000 said apologize. and 50 said don't. coming up, nbc makes tens of millions of dollars from "tonight show" franchise. what new -- what would new york need -- why would -- sorry. i'm not used to opening this. why would new york need to subsidize a move to the big apple? eric will talk about that next. ♪ ♪ ♪ [ kate ] many women may not be absorbing the calcium they take
